Madison Avenue in Watercolor and Charcoal

Filed under: charcoal and watercolor, cityscape, new york city — laurenmaurerartworks @ 8:55 pm

I’ve been doing a good bit of dress paintings in watercolor and charcoal, and have really been enjoying it. So I thought I’d give it a shot in a landscape, or cityscape. This is a painting of Madison Avenue in New York City. I found it on Google Maps, which is my new favorite way to paint landscapes, thanks to The Virtual Paintout. The latest challenge is to paint a scene found in Czech Republic. I’m working on that one right now, also in watercolor charcoal.



  1. Très jolie aquarelle…
